Private Swim Lesson Application

Private Swim Lesson Q & A

  1. What qualifies someone to take private lessons? Some participants are able to benefit more from a one-on-one experience; it lets them focus on their skills going at their own pace.
  2. How do I register for private lessons? Fill out an application. Without filling out an application you CAN NOT register. It is necessary for the process so that Aquatics Staff can meet your every need and fit you with an adequate Swim Instructor.
  3. Where can I get an application? Online: Private Swim Lesson Application
    Michelle Gonzalez, Aquatics Director, will review your application and call you to schedule an appropriate time to start your private lessons!
  4. What do I do next? Once you have received the information from the Aquatics Director, you may pay for your lessons at the Membership Desk.
  5. How many private lessons can I schedule? The flexibility of private lessons is what makes the so desirable. You have seven half-hour private swim lessons to schedule with your private lesson instructor. Near the end of the seven lessons, your instructor will assist you in how to register for additional lessons.
  6. Do I get to choose my own instructor? On our application, there is a spot for you to request a private swim lesson instructor. We will do you best to accommodate those requests, however, not all of our swim lesson instructors will be teaching privately.

Group Swim Lessons

Parent/Child Group Swim Lessons’ days and times are listed on the Registration Information flyer, which is available on the Class/Program Information page.

SWIM STARTERS: Accompanied by a parent, infants and toddlers learn to be comfortable in the water and develop swim readiness skills through fun and confidence building experiences, while parents learn about water safety, drowning prevention, and the importance of supervision.

A/ WATER DISCOVERY:

Parents accompany children in stage A, which introduces infants and toddlers to the aquatic environment through exploration and encourages them to enjoy themselves while learning about the water.

B/ WATER EXPLORATION:
